    FUNCTIONS 5-2-l STATOR The stator consists of a laminated silicon steel sheet core, copper wire which winds the core, and lead wires which de- liver the power. The copper wire is wound into the main coil. sub (.ausiliary) coil, and DC coil. XC output power is taken from the main coil.

    5-2-3 BRUSHES An exciting current is supplied from the AVR to the rotor. The brushes are made of carbon, and the brush-holders of plastic. It is necessary to keep the contact pressure between the brushes and slip rings within specitic limits. Thus. care must be taken about brush length.

    5-2-6 CIRCUIT BREAKERS Models RGX180 and RGX240 have a pushbutton circuit breaker and Model RGX240D two pushbutton circuit breakers. Nomrallp, the pushbutton circuit breaker is closed with the button pushed into the panel to keep the circuit live. If an overcurrent runs. the button comes out to break the circuit.

    5-2-7 FUSE The fuse prevents DC output overcurrent and short<ircuir overcurrent. Ii the generator is operated at a level exceeding the maximum current. it can cause insulation deterioration. ‘curninp. electric shock. and electric leakage. The fuse protects the generator from these troubles. 5-2-8 RECEPTACLE and AC PLUGS...

    The RG Series 1s the revolving armature type. and the RGX Series is the revolving field tk-pe. The differences between these types and then features are described below. The constructron of the revolving armature t>-pe is shoxn in Fig. 5 -15. and that of the revolvmg field type in Fig.

  • Page 23

    5-3-2 PRIMARY EXCITING ACTION The RGX Series employs an exciting coil in the engine mag- neto for raising the primary voltage. This action is explain- ed. The RG Series generates a voltag2 when the generator IS started again because of the residual magnetism remaintng in the yokes and poles.

  • Page 24

    5-3-4 DUAL VOLTAGE TYPE (RGX240D) The dual voltage t)-pe can generate two Foltages from a sin- gle generator. It comes in two varieties: 12OV~‘11OV and 1 lOV!ZOV. The circuit is shown in Fig. 5-l 8. Each of MC1 and MC2 generates an AC 12OV (or 1lOV) with same phase, which is one half the rated output voltage.

    5-4-5 CARBURETOR The carburetor has an air vent and a rubber pipe to ensire stabilized performance at high temperature. 5-4-6 OTHERS The air cleaner and muffler were modified in shape, but are installed in the same way as before. The air cleaner element is the same as the one used in the cyclone type.

    BRUSHES The brushes must be smooth where they contact the slip rings. If not. polish the brushes smooth with sandpaper. X brush that is not smooth produces arcs between the brush and slip ring leading to possible damage. Usable brush lengths are from 5mm to ljmm as shown in Fig.
